The timer switching off has nothing to do with it's location, it has to be in the wiring, One of those wires is in the wrong place. It is sending the juice back to the ground or neutral. Inside your timer, you have a place for 2 or 4 wires? One in, one out, the switch completes the circuit, turns on, turns off, the white wire is in there to run the clock and complete continuity to the pump? which is 220 volts? If yes, then you are switching 4 wires, 2 in, and 2 out, both colored, and the ground if there is one is screwed to a green screw inside the timer. The 2 wires in(4) 2 colored, 1 white, 1 bare or green, should be on the "line" screws, the 2 wires out, (4) should be on the "load" screws. Are the in wires on a GFI breaker? Is the pump grounded? Are those screws in the right place? Does the pump run? Now that you are totally confused. Need to know some of this stuff.

Same answer applies as one sent earlier.
Take some time and read answer, or re-post question and pay for interactive answer with fixya expert who can walk you through the steps for a price.
1) You have P1353 timer.
This is a complicated timer for beginner because timer can be set up many different ways for multiple operations.
Open following link for manual: The manual is a large file and may be impossible to download on dial-up.
Smaller manual is available but some pages are turned sideways which is not so handy.
P1353 instructions start page 28 of larger manual.
Manual is longer than space allowed for free answer, so we can work in stages.
At any time, you add a comment and I will respond -and/or send a photo of your wiring, etc
1) You want Mode 2 so low and high speeds are not turned ON at same time.
2) Wiring requirement: High speed is connected to terminal 3, low speed connected to terminal 2 as shown in fig 4-4 > this is where you can send a photo or add a comment and clarify how your timer is wired.
3) Page 30 goes through steps for setting the mode. Remember you want Mode 2.
4) Page 31 shows how to set current time of day.
5) Page 31-2 shows steps for programming each circuit.
Assuming that your wiring matches fig 4-4 mentioned above:
High speed is circuit 1
Low speed is circuit 2
Once you digest this information, it will narrow down the questions and I can answer those one at a time with more detail if needed.
Or you can re-post a question and I will probably catch it.
Also take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.
